Publisher's Summary

Featuring 21 different voices hailing from five different countries and 11 states, Ghosts, Goblins, Murder, and Madness is certain to strike a chord with every horror aficionado.   

Devil's Night, Day of the Dead, and Halloween have been celebrated around the world in one form or another, beginning with the ancient Celts more than 2,000 years ago. For some revelers, it's a time for guising, or dressing up in elaborate costume; for others, it's a time for practical jokes and mischief; and for some, it's a reverent occasion to acknowledge the thin line between earth and the spirit world.  

In this same vein, the stories in this collection provide a wide-angle lens at what comprises the unique expanse of horror fiction today. From hobgoblins and apparitions, to haunted dwellings and cursed possessions, to good intentions gone awry and evil ones turned on the perpetrator, these 20 tales will unsettle, frighten, tickle, and caution, and in the end, listeners may take heed before ever again accompanying their children trick-or-treating, striking up conversations in anonymous chat rooms, or fortifying their homes in an attempt to prevent Halloween vandalism.
